Mother's Day Bear

Pfew! I got at least ONE card done this week! It's finals week, I have a presentation, and two term papers due. Needless to say, I'm exhausted and stressed!

OK, I was also a little stressed that I hadn't made my Mother's Day cards yet - I only need two, so here's the first. I went with a "fall-to" color scheme - since I'm having a creative block. The stamp is Pollycraft colored with Copics, cut with nesties and shaded with Ranger Inks. I also added sewing (as usual), flowers are from Accent Essentials cut at 3/4", glitter on the petals and homemade dots. "Mom" is from Plantin Schoolbook at 3/4" (with shadow).

A little close of of this cutie and his glossy goodness.

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a great week! Please send prayers my way that I finish this semester in one piece!!

This meets the following challenges:
